I came across this unexpectedly on the Disney Channel surfing through stations tonight and became interested when I saw how fine the artful animation was. In color, design and format, it matched the beauty of the original conception for Disney's original PETER PAN.And it got off to an intriguing start with wartime London being the setting for the Darling household–at a time when Daddy is off to war and saying good-bye to his kids. Amusing to see Nana in an air-raid helmet while they trot off to a shelter during a bombing raid. And how true it was that soon after the nightly bombings began, children were hauled off on trains and separated from their parents for much of the war.So far, so good. Then the pirate ship makes it through the skies and onto the roof over the children's nursery–a magical blend of CGI and great hand-drawn animation for this sequence–and eventually Jane (Wendy's non-believing daughter) is whisked off to Neverland where she meets Peter Pan under mos…
Take this review with a grain of salt, because I am a massive fan of Peter Pan and all things properly based on the James Barrie classic. This sequel, however, made me cringe. I've enjoyed liberal interpretations before – Hook and Finding Neverland, for example – but this movie completely trashed whatever character Peter Pan is supposed to have. Peter Pan is not a hero – he is a mischievous and often forgetful boy. He is entirely selfish and entirely charming, and these are his two flaws. However, in "Return to Neverland," this character of "Peter Pan" is a mere ghost of the complex Barrie creation. Whatever beautiful messages Peter Pan has about nostalgia and childhood, "Return to Neverland" turns them upside down at worst, and simply ignores them at best.The animation wasn't bad, though.
"Toy Story 2" doesn’t count (and according to Eisner, it doesn’t). But I was surprised at how good this film was. It had a dark tone at the beginning. A worn torn Britain. And a child that grows up too fast. The voice cast was great by the way. And the dialouge was written very well. The story is about re-teaching a young girl how to be a kid. And maybe thats what worked. It made us feel like kids too. There is everything you expect from these characters. And a bit more. Who ever made this movie i.e. the writers and directors rose to the challenge of not letting a disney sequel suck. And they delivered. Disney should let them work more. Due to the success of this movie (which was released in theaters in Feb. 2002). Disney is releasing yet ANOTHER sequel in Feb. 2003. "The Jungle Book 2" with Haley Joel Osmet and John Goodman. Personally, I hope they thought it was good enough for a theatrical run, and not releasing it because "Return to Neverland" was a …
